Daughters of the American Revolution
Ondawa-Cambridge Chapter was formed on November 8, 1894, the 12th in New York State and 125th in the nation, when 12 women met at the home of Minerva Buck McKie. In 1895 the chapter sent its first delegate to Continental Congress. Lucinda Fowler Fish, a “real daughter” whose father was a minute man, was a member of the chapter as was Mary Robertson Moses (“Grandma Moses”) who memorialized our battlefields and countryside in her famous artwork.
Our members represent a wide area, including parts of Washington and Rensselaer Counties and Bennington, Vermont. Many are active volunteers in their communities. The chapter works closely with the Cambridge Historical Society and Museum. We meet the first Friday of the month at 1 p.m., March through June and September through December.
